People & EventsAF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G
Capture lifes defining moments
Nikkor lenses for photographing people and events excel at capturing the richness and intimacy of every human emotion. With great speed and amazing depth, theyre ideal for isolating subjects and softening backgroundseven in challenging light. Whether youre shooting candidly or setting up portraits, make lifes defining moments look their best.
Characteristics of a Portrait Lens
Fast apertures help sharp focus of your subjects while letting backgrounds softly fall away.
Sharp low-light photos
Capture great candids at dimly-lit wedding receptions or dance floors without the blur.
Fast focus performance
Shoot tack-sharp portraits with impressive detail and amazing color reproduction.
I always advise people to put their money into great glass because lenses are about the best investment you can possibly make in your photography.
